Well said.

Did anyone notice the stock charts for these guys? They obviously aren't doing something right.

I retracted my statement about Newegg, apparently the information is false and I can not support that post in that forum.

Also anyone that has a brain knows that creative makes the superior products. Anyone that decides to stop selling creative products would be making a huge mistake and would cost their own business thousands.

not every company is perfect and every company has their reasons for doing what they do. I cant believe this comes as a shock to so many people.
There's the rub for me.

I've long thought that Creative's stuff isn't the best. Of course, that's purely my subjective opinion. Everyone's got a different pair of ears, and we all hear things a little differently.

But things such as driver support and hardware incompatibilities are objective facts. This is where Creative really dropped the ball.

This whole story is about Creative's corporate avarice finally being exposed; the clients are finally responding with what is the closest thing to violence. An entire segment of the market now wants to hurt the company where it hurts most; a threat to stop the flow of green into the coffers is a kick to the jewels.

And for what? For suggesting that Creative is being robbed by someone who actually helped their gimped product become better?

I guess Creative forgot that they already got their money when the end-user bought their cards...

As one of those "You people" that have posted in the Creative forums, what is going on IS a big deal.

Creative intentionally crippled the drivers to disable full functionality of their cards and state that the functionality that users paid for will NOT be available until the X-Fi 2 cards come out. That is a total lie and is only trying to push people to new hardware. Nothing wrong with wanting to make money, but you don't do it at the expense of your customers. Never bite the hand that feeds you.


After reading yesterday about what was going on, I ditched my X-Fi in favor of an ASUS Xonar card. It works beautifully and even has EAX support. Creative are already moaning about that because EAX was one of the sole reasons that many people have purchased CL cards over the years.

over the countless computers i've designed and made for people not one creative card has failed me. Not only do they sound just as great 5 years down the road but their drivers do work. Alot of the time when someone says oh the drivers screwed up my computer has something else going on with their system.

Not once have I had a problem with vista and creative, but hey nobody is perfect. Look at what nvidia did to vista.

Technology isnt perfect either, if you expect every thing on a computer to work 100% of the time then you obviously should try working in the IT field.
